Guam - Starting this Saturday Guam Animals in Need, in partnership with Humane Society International and the Mayor's Council of Guam's Stray Dog committee will b conducting door-to-door surveys in ten villages across the island. According to a press release from GAIN the survey is to determine the number of animals across the island and in the 10 villages in greatest need of animal care, intervention and support."Guam has long had a problem with stray animals, including lack of adequate access to veterinary care and services. We are asking for the community's support and participation in this important survey," said GAIN Board President Peggy Denney. It's estimated there are as many as 40,000 dogs across Guam. The survey is being conducted in preparation of a long-term sustainable animal care and control program for the island.

The door-to-door oral questionnaire is 10 questions and should take approximately 5 minutes for each household to complete. All information collected is anonymous. Volunteers are also needed to assist with the survey. Please contact Peggy Denney at 671-483-9415 or GAIN at 671-653-4246 or Bambi Leone at 671-797-5144 if you would like to help with these efforts.
